The first edition has gained a strong following among instructors who find Kaseberg's use of guided discovery and problem solving facilitates learning new concepts and strengthens skill retention. In the second edition, Kaseberg's informal, interactive style makes algebra accessible to students while maintaining rigorous mathematical accuracy. To reduce preparation time for course leaders, and facilitate use by adjuncts, the new Instructor's Resource Manual accompanies the second edition. The manual provides a structured lesson and group-activity worksheet for each section in the textbook; incorporates materials from the textbook with supplemental projects and activities; suggests core homework assignments; and furnishes guided-discussion questions to use in recitations. This resource serves to bridge the gap between traditional pedagogy and a reform approach.
